This makes a very good sense, and frees the place from embarrassment.

Retiring Before the Sanhedrin's Decree.
Their inheritances were assigned by lot to the nine-and-a-half tribes, as the LORD had commanded through Moses.
The Levites, however, do not get a portion among you, because the priestly service of the LORD is their inheritance. And Gad, Reuben and the half-tribe of Manasseh have already received their inheritance on the east side of the Jordan. Moses the servant of the LORD gave it to them."
